  4. John Hart to be named Braves President of Baseball Operations

    Oct 23, 2014, 10:42 AM EST

    John Hart

    Presumably, the Braves will also hire a general manager, giving them the two-headed front office we’ve seen in Chicago and will soon see in Los Angeles.

  5. There was a Tim Lincecum sighting last night! But then he went away again.

    I think that constitutes more than 15%.

  9. The Royals asked a fan in Marlins gear to change his shirt last night. He refused.

    Oct 22, 2014, 12:50 PM EST

    Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 12.43.10 PM

    In other news, this answers the age-old question: are there Marlins fans?

    No, they didn’t actually wager a living baby or anything. That would be weird. They just bet on whether they should have one.

  12. The Phillies are thought to be front runners for Yasmany Tomas

    Oct 22, 2014, 7:53 AM EST

    Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 7.01.41 AM

    Not living up to a nickname: forgivable. Not giving your team a chance to win in the World Series: a way bigger problem.

    Oct 22, 2014, 6:23 AM EST
